Garry Cahill, Captain of the BNP Paribas Irish Davis Cup Team, has today named his players to face Estonia in the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas Euro/Africa Zone Group II first round tie.
James McGee will lead the team, and will be joined by Sam Barry, James Cluskey & Colin O’Brien for the tie at the David Lloyd Riverview facility in Clonskeagh on the 1st – 3rd February 2013.
Garry Cahill commented:“Estonia are tough first round opponents for us but we have a strong and fit team and we are really looking forward to the tie. Hard work and a good team spirit will be key to a successful start to our 2013 Davis Cup by BNP Paribas campaign. We have just completed a 12 day intensive training camp in La Manga, Spain and confidence in the Irish camp is very high. On top of that, home advantage counts for a lot in Davis Cup.”
Speaking about his first Davis Cup tie on home soil, Sam Barry said: “It is always an honour for me to be selected on the Irish Davis Cup team and whilst I am excited about playing at home for the first time, our focus remains on winning the match against some tough opponents .”
